Time Stamps:


[3:30] Dealing with frustration- The drama begins…people around you aren’t doing what they’re supposed to do or not doing it the way you’d like it to be done. Now what? 

[4:10] When employees aren’t performing- Who do you want to be? The CEO of your business?  Or the backfill for your employees? 

[6:22] Got stubborn clients?- Progress is stalled. They are not doing the work or taking your advice. How are you supposed to help them get results?

[7:41] The Drama Triangle- 3 roles within the Drama Triangle: 

  • Victim: feels that things are happening TO them; feels hopeless & may stop doing work
  • Persecutor: thinks they know how to do it all; blames others when it isn’t done
  • Rescuer: wants peace; ends up taking on the work of others to make it happen

[14:10] The Empowerment Triangle: 3 roles within the Empowerment Triangle:

  • Creator: thinks about what they want; do whatever it takes for that reality to come true    
  • Visionary: painting the picture of what’s possible or could be possible
  • Coach: believes in people ask powerful questions; create motivation

[17:49] What does empowerment feel like?- The roles have to shift to create a sense of empowerment. When everyone is contributing to the solution as a team, motivation skyrockets and things get done!.

[18:10] Rescuer shifts to coach-  You don’t have to do it all. You just have to pick the right questions.

[22:11] Persecutor shifts to visionary- Ignite the passion, fire and inspiration with win-win visions. Ready to see some magic happen?

[26:11] Victim shifts to creator- You really can do anything.  With your creativity unleashed and fully supported, your solutions will be better than anyone ever imagined.  BONUS - Depression and anxiety fade away.

[28:58] The impact of these roles- The Drama Triangle negatively impacts mental health. Are you ready to make a change for the better?

[29:55] Where do you see yourself?- Feeling yucky?  Up to your eyeballs in drama?  Take a step back, see your role, then you’ll know exactly how to solve the problem.

[33:07] How can you use the 2 triangles to help you?- I would love to hear your ideas and feedback!
